Since the upper limit of the integral is less than the lower one, we can rewrite the limits by applying the inverse property of integration limits: If we invert the limits of an integral, it changes sign: $\int_a^bf(x)dx=-\int_b^af(x)dx$

$-\int_{2}^{4} xdx$

Learn how to solve definite integrals problems step by step online. Integrate the function x from 4 to 2. Since the upper limit of the integral is less than the lower one, we can rewrite the limits by applying the inverse property of integration limits: If we invert the limits of an integral, it changes sign: \int_a^bf(x)dx=-\int_b^af(x)dx. Applying the power rule for integration, \displaystyle\int x^n dx=\frac{x^{n+1}}{n+1}, where n represents a number or constant function, in this case n=1. Multiply the fraction and term in - \left(\frac{1}{2}\right)x^2. Evaluate the definite integral.
